#1586 Proposed triggers: hotkeys, entry select, auto-type & x-URL


I find the trigger system to be very useful. I am not certain how much others use it, but I believe the following trigger actions and events (or similar) would significantly expand this system's utility.

1. ACTION: Register hot-key N
2. ACTION: Unregister hot-key N
3. EVENT: On press hot-key N

4. ACTION: Select Entry (based on UUID)
5. ACTION: Execute Auto-Type of selected Entry
6. ACTION: Execute URL of selected Entry

7. ACTION: Close database (identified by path & name)

ACTIONS/EVENTS 1-7 provide an alternate to buttons that could be generally useful for tasks such as opening favorite sites, or automating tasks such as opening, closing or syncing specific databases.

Additionally, ACTIONS 4-6 would expand on the capabilities of the -pw-enc, -entry-url-open, and -uuid: command line parameters and the {PASSWORD_ENC} placeholder, because opening an initial database can trigger the actions. When the actions execute, they can use data contained within the just opened database.
